Have your say

Has it ever occurred to you that therapists might be prone to the same human frailties as their patients? No?

Rating: *

Venue: theSpace @ Surgeons Hall (Venue 53)

Then prepare to have your mind blown by this heavy-handed, study of a lonely therapist at war with her psyche.

The actors embellish their strained doctor/patient duologues with pat-a-cake routines. What does it mean? Who cares? Risible, tedious, but mercifully short, this misfire says nothing of note about mental illness.

• Until 18 August. Today 3:10pm
